Social Theatre Art is a tool that is increasingly being used to empower people
throughout the world. Whilst not necessarily disadvantaged in Byron Bay, we
still have issues, personal trauma and extraordinary stories as a rich source of
raw material. The playful power of theatre can be incredibly far reaching and our
personal stories are always a reflection of the community we live in.
Our 8 week Empowering Women through Theatre’ courses have been running
termly since 2015 based at the Byron Bay Community Centre. Contact us to enrol
in any of our theatre courses starting back in February 2020.
Proudly presented by Public Act Theatre
